What will the Russians go on?


One of the characteristics of the current moment was the fact that the presented model ranks of car foreign automakers on the Russian car market consist mainly of localized models. For example, more than 95% of the new ŠKODA cars sold in the country are manufactured in Russia. The same thing is Nissan, Renault, Hyundai, Kia, etc. Almost all car companies from the top 15 Russian car market are about the same indicator as Czech Skoda.

Whose merit is it?

In the Russian Federation, a new auto industry was formed in the Russian Federation for the last one and a half decades. For the development of such an important branch of the economy as the automotive industry, it is necessary to create a number of mechanisms and a solid legislative and regulatory framework governing the dynamic development and translational movement to the intended goal.

State support of the industry in an idea should be aimed at localizing the production of cars and autocomponents, the implementation of investment and innovative projects and the development of the national base of research and development work, as well as stimulate the demand for rolling stock, for example, gasomotor.

After the period of 2018-2020, the Promsbork-1 and Promsalk-2 and Promsalka-2 are over the period of 2018-2020. It determines the obligations of automakers and manufacturers of automotive components to carry out technological operations, as well as obligations on the use of the Russian component base. Recall that the conditions for this contract are negotiated individually with each automaker.

Special investment contracts have a period of 10 years. This is not by chance, since the automaker, expanding and implementing its investment program, must be confident in the stability of the conditions of work in the country, state support measures, etc.

Such agreements in the auto industry were concluded with 14 leading automakers. Summing up the first results of the development of the Russian automotive industry in the conditions of the mechanism of special investment contracts, we note that automakers intend to fulfill the stated plans for the production of models and measures to deepen the localization of production in the Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, today some deviations and refusals of the issue of the stated models have already emerged, which will somewhat delete the choice of cars in the Russian market. Alas, such are the economic realities of the Russian car market.

So in the past time since the beginning of the action of the speakers there was a pretty an extraordinary event.

But today, when the Presentation of Renaulution was held and the head of the French company Renault Luka de Meo outlined the future of the Lada brand, it became clear that an outdated SUV ended his life cycle in a few years. It was his latest upgrade. And, apparently, the basis for closing the project will not only be the market position of this car. As long as Russian requirements for ecology and security are allowed

In addition, at the recent press conference of the Executive Vice-President for Sales and Marketing AvtoVAZ Olivier Morne, it was announced that in the line of commercial cars Lada, no new models were foreseen. In other words, the Russian car market is just enough that the renewed Lada Largus car. Accordingly, under the Lada Shotkik will not be an «heel» Dacia Dokker. He will definitely not stand on the conveyor in Togliatti. Although a year ago, at the beginning of 2020, the sources said that the project was not considered quite unpromising and figured in the registry of spikes published on the website of the Ministry of Industry RF as Lada Van.

The Chinese have gone

But there is such a precedent that occurred in the fall last year. At the end of September 2020, after a long delay, a spike with the Chinese automaker HAVAL was signed. The application of this company was filed in the summer of 2019. What such magician was connected, we are hardly learning.

It is important that Haval became the first Chinese automaker signed in Russia a special investment contract, and for sure, the only one. True, there is still a new SPIK 2.0 mechanism and the possibilities of conclusion exist among other automakers from the Middle Kingdom. But while under this investment mechanism, no signature of a single company from the auto industry is not delivered.

In turn, Haval has committed itself to localize key units and components, including engines, gearboxes, electronic blocks and car control systems. The declared investment is 42 billion rubles. Immediately after the conclusion of the SPIK in November last year, the construction of a motor plant with a capacity of 80 thousand engines a year began under Tula. In fact, this automaker from the Middle Kingdom «jumped into the head of the outgoing train.»
